LSU Scores High Marks in APR Release

BATON ROUGE – All of LSU’s varsity sports succeeded in the annual report of Academic Progress Rates (APR) released Wednesday by the NCAA.  The ratings released this week by the NCAA are part of the NCAA’s continuing academic reform efforts.

The APR is a point system based on scholarship athletes’ eligibility and retention for a pre-determined time period.  This year’s report is for the four-year period beginning in the fall of 2011. Points are awarded each semester for academic eligibility and retention, with two points possible per semester per student-athlete.

NCAA sports falling below the established cutoff point of 900 are subject to penalties including scholarship reductions. A perfect APR score is 1000.  All LSU teams scored above a 940 and 13 LSU teams scored 975 or above, including women’s golf, women’s tennis, men’s tennis and men’s cross country with a perfect score of 1000.
